Darkroom Contemporary has a nine-year reputation for delivering innovative, cutting-edge performances and developmental initiatives in the arts, and the youth development sector with Louise Coetzer and Oscar O’Ryan at the helm.

One of South Africa’s best-known dance companies, Darkroom Contemporary, is holding a fundraiser.

The public is invited to invest in the future of the performing arts industry by attending the inaugural annual gala dinner at Youngblood Arts & Culture, Bree Street, Cape Town, on Friday 26 October at 19:00.

A four-course African contemporary dinner will be created by My Kitchen Rules TV show contestants, Gomotsegang Modiselle and Oginga Siwundla’s restaurant, The Hot Skillet, based at Youngblood Arts & Culture.

Each course will be complemented with delectable wines from Goede Hoop Wine Estate­. Tickets are for sale at R425 per person and include the four-course dinner and wine pairing.

Darkroom Contemporary will launch their new membership programme at this event. The membership initiative is intended to bolster the organisation’s resources in order to deliver maximum impact in its activities serving the arts community and beneficiaries.

Membership is offered at four levels, ranging from R120 per month to an annual contribution of R8500 (corporate level).

The membership programme has been designed to offer unique benefits to all members, while making a real difference to the ongoing impact this NPO already delivers.

Artistic director of Darkroom Contemporary, Louise Coetzer explains: “The premise behind the new programme is simple – Darkroom Contemporary has implemented its most impactful year to date during 2018, reaching 340 youth and creating 40 temporary jobs within the arts sector. While we remain thankful to our funders who enable our projects, we are also extremely aware of the need to diversify the organisation’s funding sources to ensure sustainability of our future projects and activities. We endeavour to continue serving beneficiaries within the arts communities in a more meaningful way, without the gaps between projects we currently experience due to project cycles and limited resources. Our goal is to continue working towards making Darkroom Contemporary a full-time operating performing company and training facility by our 10th anniversary in 2020. We believe this membership programme is a small investment that could make a huge impact on many futures.”

The membership programme will be launched and will be available for instant sign-up at the gala on Friday 26 October and will remain live for sign-up at www.darkroomcontemporary.com.

Bookings will open on Tuesday 25 September through Quicket.

Tickets can be booked individually or a table of eight for groups or corporate bookings.

Acts include jazz singer Charlette Dickson, along with Darkroom Contemporary dancers.

The fundraiser will be hosted at Youngblood Arts & Culture Development’s Beautiful Life Building, 70 - 74 Bree Street.
